Swift Nest Box with Wireless Camera

This Swift Nest Box has been handcrafted in 18mm Redwood Cedar that has been responsibly sourced (certified PEFC), and built to last for many years.
Ideally placed out of direct sunlight (facing North, NE or NW) at least 4-5 metres off the ground under eaves or on a wall, it can be put in a tree but swift's like a clear unobstructed flight path. 
The front section of this swift box can be completely removed for easy cleaning and access to the camera, the roof has a slight incline to quickly disperse water and there are four drain holes in the swift nesting box floor.

This kit contains:

  • High quality western red cedar swift box 
  • High resolution CCD camera with Infrared (black & White) Illumination enabling viewing 24 hours
  • Integral microphone to hear as well as see what's going on inside the Swift Box
  • User adjustable focus lens (pre-set) 
  • Digital Wireless pair TX / RX  (waterproof)
  • 2x 12v Regulated Mains adaptor
  • 10 meter 12vDC Cable
  • Fixing screws
  • TV Scart plug (RCA Yellow / White) optional TV input
  • Instruction sheet full of useful tips to help maximise the chances of swifts nesting in your new box.

The Camera

This CCD High Resolution 420 TVL (TV Line) Camera has been designed specifically for use with Gardenature camera nest boxes and bird feeder camera kits. This colour bird box camera has a light sensor that switches the x10 infrared night vision LEDs on/off supplementing loss of natural light levels with an invisible IR (infrared). This bird box camera produces high resolution colour images in full light of day and sharp black and white images in low or even no light levels. The camera also houses a highly sensitive microphone so you can hear as well as see what's going on. This bird box camera has a 3.6mm lens which produces a 92 degree viewing angle. The lens will have been pre-focused to the correct position but it can very easily be adjusted to suit alternative applications. 

The Wireless Digital System 

The wireless transmitter and receiver used in this kit is of the latest technology, the signal is digitally encrypted and much more powerful than cheaper analogue systems which are prone to interference. The advantage of using digital is that you will get 100% interference free video and audio quality as these devices will automatically pair and channel hop if they detect a signal being used by another device such as broadband etc. This particular model is capable of transmitting over 120 metres line of sight. We can also supply optional high gain antennas for distances of 250m and upto 1km line of sight.

This Gardenature Digital Wireless Transmitter and Receiver kit is entirely weatherproof and very simple to install. Each unit has approximately 1.5 meters of cable which has (RCA) Audio, Video and 12v DC inputs. The transmitter also comes with a 10 meter mains cable making it ideal for outdoor and indoor camera applications where the mains plug can be upto 30ft away from the camera. 

Inside: The receiver will connect straight to your TV via a spare Scart input (adaptor included), or Yellow & White A/V inputs. There is a 240v 12vDC plug for mains connection at the wall. 

Outside: The transmitter (and all gardenature cameras) require 12v DC power, so for a wireless kit to operate a 10 meter DC cable is supplied for connection to a mains point outdoors, ideally located inside a shed or garage for example. This means that the overall distance from the outdoor mains location to the actual camera can be upto 10 metres, extensions available if required.  The 10m cable terminates at the transmitter with two (splitter) 12v outputs, one for the camera and one for the transmitter, this eliminates the need for a separate mains supply for the camera. There is an RCA Video (yellow) and Audio (white) which connect to the camera for signal transmission. 

All gardenature camera kits arrive ready assembled, so they really are just `plug and play' easy to install.
